Public Classes

The majority of our students are interested in the defensive application of firearms. Practical Edge Shooting understands that our students must first learn how to operate a firearm before they can learn how to effectively utilize their firearm for the protection of life.

Our training program separates these two important aspects of firearm use. Our 'Skill Based' classes specifically focus on increasing your skill and ability to shoot accurately and faster. Our 'Defensive Based' classes focus solely on the concepts and tactics of utilizing deadly force. We teach practical shooting, which is the ability to hit what you intend to hit with speed obtained through economy of motion, along with taking advantage of how the body naturally functions in dynamic environments.

Formatted Classes

Brian H.

"This is great, it's a cool feeling to receive instruction from someone who knows what their talking about."
